Customising e-mail notification message

Paul Sanderson
Hi

I have a wiki up and running which is restricted access. I register
individuals by use of the special:userlogin and using the 'by e-mail'
option.

The messages that they recieve is a bit confusing i.e. the title is

"e-mail address confirmation"

and the content


Someone, probably you from IP address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, has registered
an account "xxxxxxxx" with this e-mail address on Wiki

To confirm that this account really does belong to you and activate
e-mail features on Wiki, open this link in your browser:

http://www.xxxxx.co.uk/wiki/index.php?title=Special:Confirmemail/xxxxxxxxxxx

If this is *not* you, don't follow the link. This confirmation code
will expire at 17:59, 10 January 2006.



Is there any way I can customise this message to make it a bit more
user friendly.

Cheers

Hi Paul,

You can find the complete list at
http://www.xxxxx.co.uk/wiki/index.php?title=Special%3AAllpages&from=&namespace=8
It's a rather long list though :-)

Regards,
